We had the honour of taking over Poppy Cottage Garden at Easter 2017 from Tina and Dave Primmer, and will continue in the same fashion by opening to the public.
We bring with us an established business in The Flower Bulb Company, selling spring and summer flowering bulbs, tubers, rhizomes and corms online and occasionally at plant fairs.
Taking on such a beautiful, established garden is very exciting and challenging! We will maintain the garden for 2017 as we get to know what is here, and look to include complimentary planting over the following years.
For example, we are big fans of late winter and early spring plants such as hellebores, bulbs such as snowdrops and early irises, and we hope to establish an impressive display of these. In future years this will allow us to open for special days in late winter/early spring.
We will also be continuing with the tea room, plant sales and a collection of interesting poultry! We hope to expand provisions at the tea room in the future too and have chosen to serve coffee from Westcountry roasters Owens.
We look forward to meeting you and until then, please follow us on any of our social media accounts!
